Alright, so time for a new guitar. I'm between these two Fender Strats: Am Deluxe o Am Deluxe V.

V:

(red with gold)

Normal:

(black with gold)

Alright, so I like the V's better based on ascetics, but I've never tried a V neck before... And no local shops stock the V's.

So question:

Compared to a C-neck, how is the V-neck? (not preference, I mean straight facts and stuff)

This pretty much illustrates the most common guitar necks.



Personally, I think V necks fit your hand more and are more comfortable.
Did you know the odds of a Vault-Tec shelter failing are 1,763,497 to 1?

So imagine life in a Vault-Tec Vault. Not just a future.
A brighter future... underground.

Patrolling the Mojave almost makes you wish for a nuclear winter.

Thank you^

Do you know if the necks on the deluxes are soft medium, or hard Vs? The hard V looks pretty radical.

V necks are one of the best kept secrets in the guitar world. I never did understand why they haven't taken off like they should to be honest. Out of all the shapes, a V is my favorite; it keeps your hand in the right spot and is very comfortable to play after many hours.

I'm not too sure which this one has, but early Fender guitars had a hard V shape. Dean's V necks are in between the soft and medium V, so that should give you some grounds to try a V shape out before you buy.

Never tried one, but with the way you two are talking about them, I may look into it.

the thing i tend to find with the V is, they are thick enough to play chords comfotably but its only tick directly in the middle so when u wanna play a solo or sumin like that it's really comfortable

v necks are quite nice. i have never played a fender v neck, but i have a v neck on my acoustic and it is so damn comfortable. I do also enjoy the c neck on my schecter.
neck choice is really personal preference, whatever feels the best should be the guitar you purchase.

I tried a V on a dean razorback once, and it was really weird, never playing a V before i was surprised how V it is!

Most V's are the same thickness as a C shape neck. The only difference is how quickly they slope down towards the edge of the fretboard.

I love C's but I've never gotten to try out a V, so I wouldn't know. But anyway, like I said: C's are great
